There has been more than one problem flying around... WSOD is typically
caused by unconfigured or misconfigured jbt6k74 ASIC inside the LCM,
which takes an SPI connection on both GTA01 and GTA02.

On the stable-tracking branch now you should be able to recover from a
WSOD by this:

~  echo 1 > /sys/bus/spi/drivers/jbt6k74/spi2.0/reset

If you're interested to try it on GTA02 anyway you can get an image here:

You'll probably need Qi to start it unless you want to meddle with
U-Boot env (DFU this into U-Boot partition, you can use NOR U-Boot to
replace or update it)
